lyrics

Stop looking the way you do
Stop saying the things you say
Stop making the faces that you make
That make me want to see you every day
Stop helping me off the ground
Stop showing me things I wouldn't have found on my own

And all the laugh lines that we drew
Just put 'em away for now
Shine your smile somewhere else
Cause I'm sure I could do without
Another reason for me to think about you

I'm asking you
Make this easy on me
Not behind my back
Hurt me so I can see
Go on, knock me down
Tell me I'm your pain
Help me find a way
To make me hate you, make me hate you




I might burn all your letters note by note
Destroying everything you wrote to me
To forget you completely
Like a premise for a movie scene
I'll make sure my hands are clean
Convincing everyone that this was best for us both

But all the laugh lines that we drew
Just put 'em away for now
Shine your smile somewhere else
Cause I'm sure I could do without
Another reason for me to talk about you

I'm asking you
Make this easy on me
Not behind my back
Hurt me so I can see
Go on, knock me down
Tell me I'm your pain
Help me find a way
To make me hate you
Make me hate you

I'm asking you
Make this easy on me
Not behind my back
Hurt me so I can see
Go on, knock me down
Tell me I'm your pain
Help me find a way
Help me find a way
Help me find a way
To make me hate you
Make me hate you
Make me hate you
Make me hate you
Come on and just try, just try, just try a little
To make me hate you
